Why does the Torah repeat "Yovel hi Shenas ha'Chamishim Shanah"?

1.

Ramban (Refer to 25:10:5:2***): The Torah now adds that the sole objective of the 50th year is that it should be 'Yovel' - that one should desist from planting and from reaping, and that, above all, everyone should return to his possession, in fulfillment of the word "Yovel", according to its literal meaning.

2.

Ramban (according to Kabalah): Refer to 25:10:3:2.

3.

Seforno: This Pasuk teaches us that Yovel cuts two ways, inasmuch as , just as the fields are uprooted from the ownership of the purchasers, so too, they are uprooted from the ownership of the sellers, to become Hefker for the duration of the year.

4.

Torah Temimah (citing Rosh Hashanah, 9a): It comes to teach us that the 50th year is Yovel. 1

5.

Riva citing Rosh Hashanah 8b (partially cited in Rashi): The 50th year is Kadosh, but not the 51st. Do not say that just like the Kedushah increased at the beginning, similarly at the end.

But not the first year of the following cycle as per the opinion of Rebbi Yehudah.

What are the implications of "v'Lo Sivtz'ru es Nezirehah"?

1.

Rashi: It implies that one is forbidden to harvest the grapes that have been guarded, 1 only those that are Hefker. 2

2.

Ramban: Refer to 25:5:4:2.

3.

Rashbam: It implies that one may not harvest the grapes that have grown. 3

Rashi: In the same way as the Torah stated by Shemitah. It transpires that there are two consecutive years of Kedushah, the 49th year, which is Shemitah, and the 50th, which is Yovel.

It is not clear as to why Rashi does not comment on "v'Lo Siktz'ru es Sefichehah." (EC)
